art and hilarity

September 18, 2011

We went to an art festival yesterday and the boys created.

I love it when they do that.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably already know, but my boys have been saying THE FUNNIEST things lately. Like yesterday when Miles went to greet Elsie after she woke up and he noticed she was sleeping in a sleep sack (in her crib) and he said,

She’s like a little slug…a slug stuck in jail.

And then the other day, Asher was in the bathroom and I heard him say, in a robot-like voice, You. have. 55. pees. So I said, What honey? and he answered, Oh nothing, that was just the toilet talking.

Last night I was reading them books and the book said that a mother’s eyes sparkle like the stars in the sky. So of course I had to ask them if my eyes are sparkly.  They said yes! And then Asher added that my eyes are sparkly wif (with) a lot of red in them.


Am tired.

Which brings me to this: Elsie is having major sleep trouble. She still gulps so much air while she eats and I’ve tried everything and it is what is and she refuses bottles (to see if a different latch would help), so…here we are. Not sleeping.  (I say I’ve tried everything, but really, what do I know? So if you’ve had an air gulping baby and found a way to help make that NOT happen, I’d love to hear about it.)

I’m so tired that I don’t even mind begging you to join me for Just Write again this Tuesday. I loved last week’s experience (and I’m STILL not done reading every link, but I will get there). So yeah, please come along with me. I’d appreciate it very much.

I hope your weekend has been GOOD, friend.
